Rereading

So after listening to Good Omens, I decided it was high time for a reread, or a first listen, of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I expect I'll go through the whole series again for the first time in many years.  I first read this book out of my dad's collection when i was probably 12 or so.  I don't believe i've read it since the movie came out. 


I listened to the Stephen Fry version.  He reads well and I like his Ford and his Marvin.  The movie is actually pretty close to the book.  I understood so many more than the jokes than I did as a middle schooler which is pretty funny in itself because at the time i figured i did get the jokes.  Sure Marvin the depressed robot is completely understandable to a 7th grader but a lot of the other interplay between the characters is a bit, not sophisticated exactly, but you miss it if you read too quickly.  Very worth the reread.


I got this from the library and for the rest of the series the narrator is Martin Freeman!  I'm going to guess that his Arthur Dent is fabulous!
